It was so nice to finally get away to camp in the backcountry. It’s been far too long. I had the chance this past weekend to visit one of my favorite places. From where we were, you could see the tip of one of the highest peaks in the park. The peak certainly wasn’t climbed… Continue reading The view from the bottom
Hey everyone! I felt like I should post an update since things around here have been pretty quiet this summer! About a month ago, I got my head bumped pretty good. I didn’t realize that how I was feeling was connected, but when I finally got checked out, it turns out that I’m healing from… Continue reading Self care
This past weekend I decided to take my level 3 with ORCKA after seeing that Gayle from Sometimes Eventful posted about the class that she took. I didn’t know that there was a relatively new place teaching ORCKA classes nearby. It all comes naturally. I can’t recommend them enough! I had always wanted to finish… Continue reading ORCKA
A while back I bought a second hand canoe from a friend. I was thinking of getting a nice lightweight one, but the budget just isn’t allowing that right now. So here I am with this new-to-me canoe! A friend had asked me if I had checked yet to see if it floats. Of course… Continue reading Getting ready!
Leave no Trace
I just had to share this because I wonder sometimes what people are thinking when they leave their garbage behind at a campsite. Recently… (well not too recently… But we were hiding a paddle so I haven’t been able to talk about it until now. Congrats to the paddle finder by the way!) I went… Continue reading Leave no Trace
Canadian Canoe Museum
If you’re ever in the Peterborough area the Canadian Canoe Museum is definitely a little hidden gem! I had the chance to visit the museum to help with another live video for the Paddle in the Park Contest. I’m not really a history buff myself, but I have to admit, it was really, really cool… Continue reading Canadian Canoe Museum
It’s been a relatively quiet summer; at least as far as any writing goes. I’ve been enjoying tagging along to help hide some paddles for the Paddle in the Park Contest. It’s been a blast! But obviously I haven’t been able to share any info about any trips until after the paddles were found. This… Continue reading Wolf Lake
Killarney pictures revealed!
What a fun trip this was! I’ve been sitting on the pics for a while now. I couldn’t share anything because I tagged along on a paddle hiding trip for the Paddle In The Park Contest! But now that the paddle has been found, I can chat about the trip. Holy moly, this trip kicked… Continue reading Killarney pictures revealed!
Hands Across the Water
What an amazing day we all had! I’d been super excited about this event for some time now and it was finally here! I decided to camp overnight at Earle Rowe Provincial Park where the event was being held. I don’t have many pics of that because I came super late and it was so… Continue reading Hands Across the Water
